UMC is excited to announce the opening of our new Urgent Care Clinic to address non-emergent care needs. The clinic is conveniently located on the UMC Campus - Medical Office Plaza II, 808 Joliet Avenue, Suite 110.
Beginning at the moment a patient arrives at UMC until they go home, the UMC Pharmacy Department is providing passionate care. Embodied of more than 40 pharmacists and over 80 technicians, our Pharmacy Department strives to heal and comfort patients through the optimization of safe and effective medication therapy because they see the value in every person.
On Christmas night 2020, Lillie began running a fever. Her mom, Stephanie, and dad, Joey, tested positive for COVID-19 two days later. They knew Lillie must have gotten it, too.
UMC hosted a Hero Celebration for the Lubbock Health Department, to say thank you for partnering with our UMC Heroes as we battle the pandemic together. As we all know, the pandemic has brought on new challenges for the Lubbock community, and the Lubbock Health Department has been fighting with us every step of the way.
